Coming Up: Ye Olde Roof Korean Moments

"The progressive wing of the statists look to have learned very little from the Trump victory in November and absolutely refuse to acknowledge their version of reality is not measuring up to the facts of the situation.

A more stark example of the Dunning-Kruger effect I cannot think of. The people protesting have the misplaced idea that Newton’s third law does not translate on a sociological level. The election most are so upset over is proof positive that a segment of America feels very attacked and very marginalized, and over the last eight years has not only showed up to the voting booth but showed up to the gun store as well. I don’t pretend to be able to read the tea leaves. However, there will come a point when the violence will elicit a reaction from either a state actor or non-state actors, or both. Starbucks and Berkley may not bother to defend their private property, but there will inevitably be a Korean shopkeeper moment....

"The crisis of identity has been a generation in the making, and inconvenient facts will not reverse a generation raised on political tribalism. Escalation is inevitable because it is the only course left. Trump was the third way Glenn Beck is so obsessed with, a peaceful, albeit crude, stopgap. Unlike peace, war only requires one party to acknowledge the fact. People will die at some point, as a beating gets out of control or a building catches on fire. Trump will feel the need to respond and will likely involve federal agents or possibly the National Guard if the situation escalates even further. The echoes of Kent State are strong here. The moment boots on the ground show up the movement is legitimized and the color revolution has the optics they need. What happens after that is anyone’s guess. One thing is for sure, it will not go away." - - - Inevitable – The Virginia Freeman's Society

Yeah. The previously unseen, unheard force that emerged and elected Trump is still out there, watching and waiting, unseen and unheard until the need to emerge reaches critical mass.

Trump can't stop telling lies. How the hell is this supposed to turn out better if he can't just use the truth, which is more than enough.

Today's lies were more obvious than "if you like you doctor you can keep your doctor,, if you like your insurance you can keep you insurance". None of this can work if Trump can't stop lying. Like I said, the truth is more than enough, if he'd just learn to use it.

Mr Alleged, ease up. What specifically are you talking about? Never mind. Eat a couple horse tranquilizers and wash them down with a tall glass of Wild Turkey. That should fix it.

One of my all time favorite movie moments.

There is more truth in Barry Corbin's statement than in any other thing I've ever heard.

I agree, it's a great movie throughout, and even more poignant when you remember that the story was set in 1980. What would Ed Tom have made of an America almost 40 years later?

Alleged: Quote one "lie". Verbatim.
Cut and past the quote and source.

Smokey, Won't happen, but the truth doesn't matter to these people, only "feels"
